Azura prides itself on being one-of-a-kind. This could not be more true with our current development model. This is a well-thought-out medium where meaningful content can reach our dedicated audience.
We were established to fill a void in publishing; this is an adaptable platform intent on creating something lasting. We are not just a serial publication. Azura has extended its reach into creative development with Azura Labs. Our methods of promotion involve a traditional setting with a modern twist, capitalising on the rising depths of social media.
Azura Avenue is a new department within Azura that addresses creative and intellectual growth. Since Azura is primarily known for producing great content with easy readability, we have expanded into helping others create high-quality materials
This inventive new addition allows creatives to receive one-on-one coaching, mentorship and guidance with the Azura team. We don’t just leave you hanging. Our ongoing support specialises in assisting in structure, contextual and mechanical editing, and design.
Azura is a digital magazine driven by content. This monthly magazine was made to fill a void in the publishing industry: something modern, informative and stylish.
Azura fixates on creating content that should enrich the career-focused individuals. As the population increases, so does the demand for alternative media in the region. We are here to provide that.
A business lifestyle magazine should not only cater to the entrepreneurial side of life. The magazine is divided into four (4) categories: Living, Style, Wellness and Productivity. Each category features content that should provide “food for thought” in all aspects of life.
Content in a magazine is much more than its text; magazines are a visual medium. Our design takes many things into consideration, legibility is one of them. In a time when most people spend their time on their electronic devices, it is practical to make content easy on the eyes.
Each monthly magazine centres on a theme, an abstract title that forms the basis of what the issue’s content will be. Since Azura’s debut with The Sky Issue, we have continued to create themes that are thought-provoking.
These are not relegated to only being print serial publications. Magazines are supposed to be engaging. Digital magazines have become more prominent in recent years. Digital magazines aren’t uncommon either, but unfortunately, they have a high fatality rate.
As much as these are many new publications that enjoy the attention of getting past the first issue, many do not follow a model that guarantees longevity. Ultimately, it boils down to the survival of the fittest. The most adaptable model will be able to withstand a constantly changing publishing environment.
The demand for specific types of content changes with the progression of the audience. With the current fixation on social media, it is only logical to look towards it as a way of keeping your audience.

Ideas and concepts should not just be keeping a permanent residence in your mind. The desire to create is not as satisfying as the feeling of completion. It takes a lot of honest introspection to look back at your dead projects. While scouring and sifting through the graveyard, pay attention to what you wanted to achieve and your reasons behind it. Better yet, make a list. It is important to pick one project as the main focus.Read More
Every artist, designer, poet and author is an entrepreneur the moment they start to sell their work. The problem is that most of them don’t know it. In some more perilous situations, they don’t know what to do about it. Most artists think of their work as art, which is fine (and technically correct), but it is also a product. Products are meant to be sold. Proper sales and marketing strategies are key to selling products.Read More
Sitting down to write just hours before it is due, writing only one draft, and submitting it is not the best practice. Racing against the clock leaves little to no time for revision. Those using this method often say that working fast somehow allows them to overcome writer’s block. Sometimes we work under strict time constraints – that is something to be said of all professions. In some cases, we believe that we can produce good quality work just before the deadline.Read More
Abstract art is a visual representation of a conceptual subject. When looking at an abstract piece, we do not see a realistically depicted subject, but rather how we perceive these things in a more transcendent light. Abstract art deconstructs the familiarity by which we can see and gives us a depiction that we must interpret. This can be a challenge for those who are more accustomed to lateral thinking and more contemporary forms of art.Read More
The best content comes from the informed choice of putting time and effort into creating something that achieves what you want. The quality of something is relative and this applies especially to things we consume. What is the point of buying 6-inch heels when you really prefer sneakers? Content for your business should engage your customers (and attract your potential customers) by providing something useful. At the end of it all, they should have something to take away from your business.Read More
All you need to do is put pen to paper, not often, but frequent enough to record your thoughts. Recording your thoughts can be a simple release and a way to express yourself. Using your creativity to construct something is a way to exercise your mental capacity. Contrary to what some may think, your creativity is not a well that can easily be drained. It is not a finite resource. Through skill and determination, anyone can develop good writing skills.Read More
